About the Book

Luella discovers a male pheasant has been leaving his tracks very close to the hen house. Luella wants to find out more about this visitor, so she creates a plan. She will feed this pheasant in hopes of developing his trust and possibly friendship.

The relationship of this very unlikely pair blossoms with each activity these two friends share. Whether it is playing hide-and-seek or watching Frank take a dust bath, Luella has truly found a friend for life.

The summer days quickly pass. Fall has arrived. Harvest season is in the air. There is a distant sound of a tractor in Frank’s cornfield.

Luella runs down the road to catch the school bus. What will happen to this precious friendship?

“Luella and Frank the Pheasant” is the third book in the Luella Book Series.

The “Luella Books” are wholesome and family oriented.  They were written especially for children in the primary grades.  Parents and grandparents will enjoy reading these books to their children!
 —Ann Vogt, school teacher

After reading the first four books in the “Luella Books” series, I enthusiastically recommend them for children and their parents!  Ms. Gaenzle’s writing style reflects both her love for children and her appreciation of those small but important childhood experiences.  The books also encourage a love and appreciation of nature and wildlife - especially for our feathered friends.  Enjoy!

About the Author

Author Nancy Gaenzle was born and raised in a small town in southern Idaho on the Camas Prairie. Her love for wildlife comes from her grandmother Mary Gaenzle who had a special fondness for birds. Nancy, a retired schoolteacher, has one daughter, Marta, and one granddaughter, Luella. The Luella book series is named after her granddaughter. The characters in her stories are named after actual family members to honor their positive influence on her life.

Illustrator Paul Bush, originally from Detroit, grew up in Idaho as a child of two engineers. He too had his sights set on a career in engineering but decided calculus wasn’t nearly as fun as drawing. Paul attended Utah State University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in art with an emphasis in illustration. While Paul is new to illustrating children’s storybooks, he has been creating illustrations and animations for the health-care information industry for years, including education geared toward children. His work has been recognized and awarded in the industry.
